First we played and learned a number of techniques, some I had tried before, some that were new to me. We made our own stamps and stamped on cheap white cotton fabric. We also used some fabulous screens designed by Lyric - some with paint and some with foil.

I have very little experience with foil, so now I want to practice more and really learn how to exploit it.
We also did photo transfer (fugitive media). This was brand new to me and so I'm really anxious to practice that technique.
And then the beading. I was pretty sure I loved beading. Now I'm certain. I am particularly delighted with her technique for cabochon beaded bezels.
Our kits were for making small journal covers. The kits included some hand-dyed cotton and coordinating beads and a cabochon to match. Such a quick and satisfying project. I was able to finish mine the very next day.
